Breakers Lose on Stoppage-Time Penalty

Due to circumstances well beyond our control, neither Steven nor I was able to attend the Breakers game tonight. Therefore, we unfortunately can't offer a match report. In fact, all we can offer is the match report on the WPS site, which does a pretty good job of describing the match.

The good news is that the Breakers broke out of their goal-scoring drought and even managed to take an early lead. The bad news is that they lost in heart-breaking fashion, giving up a penalty to Sky Blue FC in second-half stoppage time and ultimately falling 2-1. Boston still hasn't won at home this season; in fact, the Breakers' only victory came in their season opener against Washington.

With the loss, the Breakers remain in next-to-last place, still five points ahead of Atlanta with one more game played. Boston plays FC Gold Pride in San Francisco on June 19. The next home game will take place on Friday, June 25, against Chicago, and we'll make every effort to be there.
